West Coast Rangers run NZ Football's award winning 'Whole of Football' programme.
This is a grassroots programme designed to retain and develop young talent while ensuring that all players learn the skills they need to enjoy the game. On the Saturday morning, each team participates in short skills sessions, followed by short, small-sided games.
The Whole of Football program comprises grades 4,5,6,7 and 8. After 8th grade, players move on to Junior Football.
- First Kicks - grades 4, 5 and 6
- Fun Football - grades 7 and 8
Players are placed in grades according to their age on January 1st. All teams are mixed – boys and girls playing together.
More information about this can be found on the NZ Football whole of football page here.
The 2021 football season will start on 8th May and will finish 25th September to coincide with school terms two and three.
There is no football over the first and middle weekends of the July school holidays (10th & 17th July) but there will be football on the last weekend of the holidays (24th July).
Kick off is at 8.00am on Saturday mornings. We finish by around 9am. Don't worry there is a coffee cart!
West Coast Rangers have two locations to play football, Fred Taylor Park and Huapai Domain. You will get the choice of your preferred location when you register online here.
